3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle via phaleslu. Pours dark brown with some reddish highlights and a small beige head. The aroma had the fruit character I was expecting, dark fruits, a hint of cherry, caramel, and a decent amount of buttery toffee. The flavor is pretty sweet, buttery toffee, caramel, dark fruits with plums and cherry standing out. This is good, but not great; certainly a bit different.
